We stayed in a restored cottage - Oak Cottage - on the estate. It was pleasant and well-restored, athough the upstairs bedroom might be very hot in hot weather. The estate setting is interesting - it oddly reminded us of slave-based estates from the US South. Woolmers is heavily dependent on volunteer labour, and this left us feeling that we lacked the kind of information about what we were entitled to do on the estate, given that we were staying there. The national rose garden was impressive - but, equally, did not really give the detailed information about each plant that one might have expected, given that it has pretentions to being a national collection. All told, it is an interesting experience, and a visit to Wollmers and Brickendon is very worthwhile.
